This is a stripped down version of the Aika mug designed by Heikki Orvola in 2006 and it serves as the canvas for the Graphics series from Finland’s Iittala.
Graphics is a collection of visual expressions by four international designers, each with their own unique artistic voice. The project aims to bring the most interesting art to the most simple moments, like sipping your morning coffee or afternoon tea.
All mugs come packaged in a beautiful box for gifting, storing, or re-using.
This mug was designed by Boston-based Christopher DeLorenzo, whose philosophy is that everything can be a portal for something. His inspiration for the project was our ability to transform objects found in nature by the touch of our daily lives, bending them to create a totally new, harmonious world. The result is called “Shaped/Shifted,” and like others in the collection, it has a psychedelic, funky feel to it.
Dimensions: 11cm high x 9cm diameter at the rim
Microwave and dishwasher safe.
Designed in Finland and made in Thailand.
